Taunton Catholic Cemeteries Memorial Day Mass

A Memorial Day Mass for all those buried in the Taunton Catholic Cemeteries will be held at St. Jude the Apostle Church, 249 Whittenton Street, Taunton. Fr. Gerard Hebert will celebrate the Mass on Monday, May 28th, at 10:00am. All Parishioners are invited to attend. In addition, a clean-up of the Catholic Cemeteries will begin early on June 4, 2018, therefore if you wish to retrieve artificial decorations or potted plants, please do so by June 3, 2018. All will be removed and disposed of at the landfill; nothing will be retained at the Cemetery.

Changes In Our Faith Formation Program

For eight years Lisa Donahue has served as Director of Faith Formation here at St. Ann’s. She has served the families and the children of our parish with devotion and love. Lisa has come to the decision that now is the time for her to step down from this position. Lisa has been a joy to work with and I know she will be missed. Thankfully she’s only leaving the position and not the parish! (Stay by the phone and check your email Lisa!)

I am please to announce the Mrs. Jennifer Murphy will be our new Director of Faith Formation. In the coming weeks I will let Jennifer tell you more about herself and her family but in the meantime I can tell you she comes to us as a young mother who has experience in education and in working for the Church. I am grateful for her “yes” and I look forward to her energy, creativity and eagerness in sharing our Faith with the families and young people of our Parish. Welcome Jenn! May God bless you in your new work!

Jenn will start on May 21st and Lisa will conclude her role on May 31st. There will be a little bit of overlap so that Jenn and Lisa can work together to plan for the coming year.

Deacon Matt’s Ordination to Priesthood

The weekend of May 26th and 27th will be Deacon Matt’s last weekend with us. While he will be missed this is not a sad time but a truly happy and blessed occasion; as we know June 9th Deacon Matt will become Fr. Matt! This will be a great day for Deacon Matt, his family and the Diocese of Fall River as Deacon Matt, Deacons Dan Nunes and Juan Carlos Munoz will become priests for our Diocese. All are welcome to attend and celebrate this great event. The ordination takes place on June 9th, 11:00am at St. Mary’s Cathedral on 2nd Street in Fall River. The Reverend Matthew Gill (Fr. Matt) will celebrate his First Mass of Thanksgiving on June 10th, 2:00pm at St. John’s Church in Attleboro – once again, all are welcome.  On June 17th Fr. Matt will celebrate the 11 am Mass here at St. Ann’s followed by a light reception in the parish center. Please join us for these great celebrations!

Let us pray for our soon to be new priests and all who are discerning a vocation to ordained ministry in our Church!

We are just at the beginning of the Appeal and the initial returns are encouraging! As of this past Monday, May 14th, we have received $38,520.00 from 162 parish families.

For those who have not yet contributed, please give careful consideration to this important diocesan endeavor. Donations may be mailed to the parish, dropped off at the Parish office, or placed in the collection basket on the weekend. For those who did not receive an envelope in the mail, they are available at the church entrances.
